The Lego Movie 2 Releases Short – Emmet’s Holiday Party

Warner Bros. has released a new short for the upcoming The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. The new short is holiday-themed with Emmet (Chris Pratt) planning a massive holiday party that can ominously be seen “from space.”

In the end, the lovable builder brings together all of Apocalypsburg. The short features plenty of the humor that made the first film so fantastic, and does a great job of building hype for its sequel, which hits theaters on February 8th, 2019.


Aggretsuko: We Wish You a Metal Christmas Announced

Netflix has revealed that the wait for a little more Aggretsuko is shorter than we thought. While season 2 is still in the works, the relatable red panda is getting her own Christmas special, Aggretsuko: We Wish You a Metal Christmas. Oh, and the teaser features a performance from Rancid’s Tim Timebomb, which is amazing.

“While Retsuko desperately makes plans for Christmas Eve, her new obsession with seeking validation through social media spirals out of control.”

Aggretsuko: We Wish You a Metal Christmas releases on Netflix on December 20th.

New Trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Disney has posted a new trailer for its upcoming The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, adapting the classic story for a modern audience, with a few key changes to the plot. The effects look beautiful, and as long as they keep the wonderful music intact, and I can easily see this being quite the holiday hit.

It’s not often anymore that we get blockbuster holiday films, so it’s refreshing to see Disney taking a risk on this one.

Disney’s Nutcracker and the Four Realms Trailer

Ph LEVEL is back! While Christmas may be over, the holiday spirit is still running through my veins, and I’ve at least set out to catch up on a few trailers that released during my hiatus. First up, we’re keeping the Christmas feeling going with Disney’s unveiling of the first trailer of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, their live-action adaptation of the fabled stage play.

The film takes the usual Disney live-action flair, and adds some holiday spirit with Keira Knightley, and Morgan Freeman topping out the cast of newcomers. The film is set to release November 2018.

Cake-Flavored Pepsi Headed to Japan


Japan is known for its many flavors of many things. Being unafraid to merge the strangest flavors and textures in a bid to create something memorable and unique. Pepsi is a great example, with their latest “Christmas Cola” being released in Japan on November 21st. Typically, Christmas in Japan is celebrated with a delicious cake, and now Pepsi wants in on the tradition, with a new cake-flavored Pepsi cola.

There’s a sweet, yet tart strawberry aroma in a white cola, meant to evoke the creamy holiday sponge cake, most often topped with strawberries. Enjoy!
